Caird Research Fellowships

Royal Museums Greenwich has a well-established fellowship programme supporting high-quality research that provides new perspectives on our collections. We welcome applications that engage with our thematic priorities which, for this call, comprise the following:

  • The migration of people, objects and ideas
  • British identities in imperial, post-colonial and global contexts
  • Human perspectives on the modern maritime world
  • Understandings of nation, community and identity in museum practice
  • Developments in citizen heritage, public engagement and heritage science
  • Female patronage, art, architecture and performance in the Stuart court
  • Naval/military uniform and concerns regarding status, display and identity

Engagement with our collections is essential, and applicants unfamiliar with these resources should consult the Museum’s Library and Archive online catalogues before submitting an application. Further information about the Museum’s current priority areas for research can be found in our 2018-22 Research Strategy document.
